Israeli Military Industries might have created the most extreme wheeled armored vehicle ever with their unveiling of the Combat Guard. This baby packs 54-inch tires, close to three feet of ground clearance, weighs eight tons and can go just about anywhere. Think rock crawler meets Stryker meets Lamborghini LM002 in Halo.
My recent piece on Panhard's innovative CRAB showcased a rugged buggy-like scout/recon vehicle with state of the art electronics and an optional big ass cannon. Well, IMI's Combat Guard is like a CRAB that has been shooting roids and working in a crude outdoor gym for months while living on nothing but red meat, raw eggs and Red Bull. This thing is really wild, and the engineers over at IMI are fully aware that it takes the armored personnel and scout vehicle concept to a whole new extreme.
